    Which apps, drivers, etc. would you like to see in the Ubuntu repositories?

    I was having some problems locally installing some applications and started to wish that they were in the repositories. Are there any apps, drivers, libs, etc. that you would like to see in the repositories to make installation easier?

    The app that I really wish was in the repositories is xfce4-panel-menu.

    Skype.
    I don't know why it's not in there...it's not hard to install otherwise, I'd just like it in the repo so I can get all the software I use from one place.

    skype is in the medibuntu repository. Just add that and add/remove or apt-get it.

    I didn't know songbird was made for Linux. I'll have to try that.
